Serene, still and calm I lie,
Stretched beneath the heavenly sky,
Lapping the dewy grass around me,
Silently I ripple and smile.
For long, long days,
I watch the birds overhead fly,
Their joyous chirps of freedom,
They make me give me a wanting sigh.
The nights I pass alone,
Not a soul within sight,
I stare around with a heavy heart,
Knowing that there are still long hours for daylight.
